    August 27, 2016 - Double decanted about 2 hours before serving. This wine is a bit fruit forward with plums and black berries in the nose and initial flavors. Wood is not overly pronounced and the tannins in this wine have dissipated and the wine has good length. This is a very good Muga Rioja that should be around for a few years. Very similar to the 2006 and 2007 Reservas.

    December 21, 2015 - brought to dinner party so was not able to decant and did not take formal notes. I usually really enjoy this wine but maybe expectations (or an off bottle) were too high. 89+

    November 1, 2015 - A ton of baby fat to shed. Tannins and acids all out of whack when popped, much better after one hour in the decanter, can do better with two. Nose giving away nothing much but can taste the depth and good blackcurrent fruit peeking thru but right now structure is all in front. Quality, serious wine for sure, just needed a couple more years to be approchable and long life thereafter. 89 for now, 90s for sure when mature
